Medical Marijuana Facility to Open in Kent County

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- A company that operates medical marijuana facilities in New York, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C. has been selected by Delaware to open Kent County, Delaware's first dispensary.

Delaware's Division of Public Health has completed contract negotiations with Columbia Care, a New York firm that currently operates in six U.S. states, according to a statement from Emily Knearl, an agency spokeswoman.

"Columbia Care will be preparing the Kent County production facility and retail facility over the next several months to open in the second half of 2017," she said.

Knearl said Delaware is also in negotiations "with the potential Sussex County medical marijuana vendor" but hopes to announce the selection in the coming weeks.

First State Compassion Center, located outside of Wilmington, is currently the only medical marijuana dispensary in Delaware.
